Paisley Bell knows the eccentric people of Savage Wells. From the absentminded shopkeeper who always thinks she's been robbed to the young man who has returned shell-shocked from the war, Paisley has compassion for them all. When the sheriff up and leaves town, Paisley steps up and assumes the responsibility, partly because she loves the work, but also because she needs the income to take care of her sick father. So when the town council decides that the position of sheriff should really go to a man, Paisley finds herself fighting to prove that she's the perfect candidate for the job, even though she wears a skirt. Cade O'Brien is heartily sick of shooting people. In his many years as a lawman, Cade has seen his share of blood and violence. So when he answers an advertisement for a sheriff job in the sleepy town of Savage Wells, he believes he's found the peace and quiet he's always desired. But when he discovers that his biggest competition for the job is a woman, he begins to question his decisions. Tension between the two begins to sizzle when both Cade and Paisley realize the attraction they have for each other, but when Paisley's former beau shows up in town, along with a band of bank robbers, the blossoming relationship between the two sheriffs is tested. They will have to work together to thwart the bank robbers and keep the town safe.

MY THOUGHTS
The author brings us a clean, good  (A Proper Romance)book about the right of a woman to hold what is supposedly a man's job.   This is a small town and it certainly doesn't need two sheriffs but Savage Wells may not be peaceful for long.  So after Paisley Bell has been holding down the job for some time, she isn't likely to turn it over to a stranger, even though he is a well known lawman, Cade O'Brien.
Paisley doesn't just love her work, she needs the job to care for her sick father.This isn't your usual western.   Two strong characters, a man and a woman going back and forth at each other is so real you can almost see them in the dirt street fussing at each other.  It's entertaining.  I like the way the romance slowly builds between Paisley and Cade and they aren't just thrown together like, Wham, Bam, Thank you Ma'am.  It's tender and natural.The author makes the reader feel like they have front seats to this story and you don't want to take an intermission for fear of missing something.  The author gives the reader everything, romance, suspense, lots of action, some thought rendering moments.Savage Wells may be a small town but who will survive and become the sheriff, Paisley or Cade.?
 
I was given a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Night Owl Reviews and I voluntarily decided to review it.
 
I would give this book 5 STARS.
